The Leicester Shire Equalities Forum (LSEF) is a partnership of officers working on equality, diversity and human rights from various public sector organisations across the sub-region of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.  

The Forum has a collective focus to tackle discrimination, reduce inequality, and foster good relations for all stakeholders in the sub-region through partnership working.   

LSEF aims and objectives

The aim of the forum is to support the delivery of the equality, diversity and human rights agenda within Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

This includes developing a more consistent approach to partnership working on equalities and to heighten the equality, diversity and human rights agenda by implementing a positive approach to shared working.  

The vision of the LSEF is that Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland is a place where all people are treated with equality and fairness. This does not mean that all people across the sub-region will be treated the same, but means that the forum will ensure that individual needs are recognised and met.

LSEF vision

The LSEF believes that everyone should be able to access public services and no individual should be excluded due to disadvantage or discrimination. The key vision of equality across the partnership is underpinned by the ambitions of:

  • people achieving their own potential and enjoy a good quality of life
  • everyone can access and use services, facilities and information
  • there is public influence over decision making and planning
  • there is in-depth understanding of the diverse range of communities
